About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy the serenity and beauty of Wrightsville Beach, a 4 mile long island near the historic town of Wilmington, NC. It is generally devoid of high-rise buildings, and consists mainly of single-family homes, small condominium developments, and a small commercial district a unique blend of quiet beaches with cultural activities a short drive away.

This fabulous house, built in 1996 by the current owners, has been privileged to have had several 'studio' rentals, including producers, directors and even a few actors. Among them, Burt Reynolds, who wrote in guest book. 'This was the best place for work and R & R I have ever been. You can always tell when a house is full of love this one is'!!

Ashley Judd wrote 'How lucky I was to find your house a 'haven by the sea'. I will always have only the fondest memories of my stay at XXX. South Lumina'!!

Some other compliments that seem to resonate with most are: 'elegant, yet warm & cozy', 'Your house really is a home, & you make your guests feel like family'. 'no words can do justice to the spirit of hospitality in your home', 'reflects so much love, creativity & exquisite taste', 'What a peaceful, comfortable atmosphere you have created', and possibly the most rewarding compliment of all to the owners. 'All of our company this week agree that 'this is the Best House On The Beach'!'

The layout of the house is the very popular 'inverted' plan with the living area on the upper levels to best enjoy the views. There are 5 spacious bedrooms (including the loft), 4 full baths, and a wonderful outside shower. Beginning with the ground level, there is a foyer, a 2-car garage, storage, outside shower, and most important to many, the elevator.

The huge master bedroom on the 1st level has a king bed and sitting area, with a large private bath. A porch off of this room is absolutely perfect to enjoy your morning coffee. Also, on this floor you will find one queen bed-room with a private bath, one bedroom with two 3/4 beds with a private bath, and a laundry room.

On the 2nd level, with a more open floor plan, you will find an amazing kitchen with a breakfast room and sitting area, a dining room (table seats 8--plus 4 more at an adjacent game table), opening into a comfortable living room with bar and doors outside to a partly covered porch. There you will find plenty of seating for relaxing and enjoying the beach atmosphere. A 4th bedroom (queen) and bath complete this floor.

The 3rd floor is a very spacious 'loft' overlooking the
living room, with a queen bed, a sofa, large comfortable chairs, and an inviting porch, with the most incredible views of the ocean and channel.

A beautiful partially-shaded landscaped side yard compliments the house and provides a place for 'play', as well as a cooler inviting retreat for anyone after a day in the sun. Beach access is only steps from the driveway. There is ample parking for 6 cars and enclosed space to secure 'toys' and beach paraphernalia.

You will love playing and walking on the beach, swimming, surfing, shelling, fishing from the surf or one of the two piers on the island, biking, or running or walking 'the loop', a popular 3 mile journey around Harbor Island which separates Wrightsville Beach from the mainland. Tennis courts and a wonderful park for kids are nearby. Kayaks and motor boats can be rented on the beach or Island.

Numerous restaurants are either within walking distance or a short drive back to the mainland. Upscale shopping is available at Lumina Station or Mayfaire, only a 5-10 minute drive away. The historic district of Wilmington is only 15 minutes away. Downtown Wilmington is thriving with shopping, restaurants, bars, historical tours, and tours of the famous USS North Carolina battleship. The North Aquarium is 20 minute drive and history buffs will enjoy tours of nearby Fort Fisher and other Revolutionary War and Civil War sites.
